Women in the United States were given the right to vote on August 26, 1920 when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was signed. Please join us as a community to celebrate Women's Right to Vote and help Raise Money for a Good Cause- Victim Support Services.
Founded in 1988 Victim Support Services serves all victims of violent crime, including domestic and sexual violence.
As we celebrate in Kirksville, MO the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution we will also work for one month to raising money for Victim Support Services.
Women in the United States were given the right to vote on August 26, 1920 when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was signed. The amendment was first introduced many years earlier in 1878. Every president has published a proclamation for Women's Equality Day since 1971 when legislation was first introduced in Congress by Bella Abzug. This resolution was passed designating August 26 of each year as Women's Equality Day!
Please join us this year and every year as we come out to celebrate and recognize amazing women in our communities and raise money for a good cause!
